2012 NFL Draft: First Round Draft Picks
A list of the first round picks of the 2012 NFL drafts.
The 2012 NFL Draft began Thursday, April 26. The draft began with the Indianapolis Colts and the first couple picks were pretty obvious. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were the first two to be chosen.
But after months of several different mock drafts by several different NFL experts, fans weren't sure what to expect. Teams also traded players and picks. There were eight trades involving 12 teams.
